Mental Health First Response: e-learning training course

Mental Health First Response e-learning training course

This course is specifically designed to support any individual or organisation looking to promote mental health at work. It’s particularly useful in laying the foundations to become a Mental Health First Responder or Mental Health Champion at work.

Our aim is to make mental health training as widespread, flexible and accessible as mandatory training such as conventional physical Health and Safety training.

In addition to its value in Continuing Professional Development, this course may be used as an ‘online toolkit’ readily accessible as, and when, required.

Mental Health First Response is particularly useful for organisations finding it difficult to release staff for training and/or meet the expense of a two-day programme for staff.

We recommend employers use this course as part of a ‘blended learning’ approach which includes face-to-face training delivered by an accredited Mental Health First Aid instructor.

Who should do the course?

The course is for anyone interested in learning the first principles of mental health.  Learners will discover how to promote mental health at work and how to respond to a colleague who may be developing a mental health problem or facing a crisis.

Course content

‘Mental Health First Response’ is based on evidence and guidance drawn from clinical and non-clinical sources including NHS and charities such as Mental Health First Aid England, Mental Health Foundation and Mind.
